well, how clean is your favorite restaurant? first the silicon valley and now other parts of the bay area. it's an investigation that keeps getting bigger. >> health inspection programs throughout the bay area that have problems with enforcement. now the undercover investigation. >> reporter: having a score in the window forces restaurants to clean up because most customers who see a low score probably won't eat there. in santa clara county we know
6:42pm
what to expect, nothing. they don't grade restaurants. but what about san mateo and san francisco? both score restaurants and require inspections be visibly posted. so we went undercover and found just because it's the rule doesn't mean it's being followed. at the busy cafe barone in men low park, there are plenty of menu choices. but something is missing. that's because we asked to see their inspection report. san mateo county requires it be posted in plain view. it's mysteriously missing, but would have shown us how the restaurant scored, excellent, good, fair or poor. less than 3% of restaurants in san mateo county scored poor last year. the cafe is one of them. >> that's the only thing we got docked for was food handler. >> but records show it was cite
6:43pm
ed for major violations that may cause a foodborne illness. important information we found restaurants across san mateo county keeping from you. we visited 25 restaurants with hidden cameras looking for their inspection reports. thank you. that's just a permit. others had blank reports. i can't see anything on it. and at firehouse employees didn't know what county we were in. we are in san ma teo county, which may be why they also didn't know the rules. they said we had to show i.d. to see the report, which they didn't have. can we see your health inspection? this chuck e. cheese had it up but, look closely. >> that's old. >> reporter: it's from 2009. and you can't see the score. he says the inspector was there recently. >> we saw her a month and a half
6:44pm
ago. >> how did you do? >> excellent. >> reporter: records show it received a fair. are you supposed to hang it up? >> yes or no. yeah. a health inspector never told me to. she's supposed to tell me. >> reporter: out of 25 restaurants, only one had the current report in plain view, so what's the penalty for not post ing it? there isn't one. do you think the system is working right now? >> i think that we have several tools for communicating inspection results to the public. >> reporter: we showed antoinette some of our video. is what you see acceptable to you? >> i think the important thing to remember is there's always that additional education that we can do with the restaurants. >> reporter: do you think there are things that maybe the county could can do to make sure that
6:45pm
restaurants are in compliance and to bring them all up to the standard that you have here? >> i think the important thing is to remember that we as public health professionals go into a restaurant to ensure that they are complying with those laws and regulations. >> reporter: we also went to 25 restaurants in san francisco where inspection reports are required to be up and easy to spot, but we found it's a game of hide and seek. >> here it is. >> reporter: like where it was behind the wine. and above the door at taco in the marina. you can't even see that. at lori's diner, we found it behind a plant. and other places, well -- >> in the office. >> upstairs, i think. >> we have it in the kitchen. >> i think there's a lot of misinformation. >> reporter: richard lee is in charge of san francisco's inspection system. why do you think so many
6:46pm
restaurants aren't complying? >> i don't think it's hyperbole. if they have a bad score, it's not something that they necessarily want the customers to see. >> reporter: lee says they are docked a point for not having the report up. you see, san francisco has a points system. inspectors score restaurants from one to 100 in detailed easy to access information posted on the county website. we found last year less than 8% of restaurants scored below 80. balboa cafe received an 81. customers walking in wouldn't know that. >> as long as it's available to guests to read, it doesn't have to be in public view. we have to keep it up for a certain amount of days after that evaluation. >> reporter: and then you can take it down? >> and then we can take it down as long as it's accessible to guests. >> the person who said you can take it down after a few days, that's incorrect. >> reporter: that was the manager. >> that's totally incorrect. >> reporter: we did find some restaurants with good scores posting this. it's an easy to read scorecard
6:47pm
the county created to simplify inspection information for customers. so you don't have to review a two-page report, but -- >> the actual report is required to be posted but not the placard. >> reporter: do you think if it was required it would improve the system? >> i think it would improve public information. it would be easier for the general public to understand. that's probably more useful to them than looking at the inspection report. >> reporter: that's up to the board of supervisors to decide. until then -- it appears restaurants will decide what information they want you to see. we contacted all of the restaurants mentioned. most said they will post the inspection report in a visible spot. however, mommy burger in san francisco has not responded to it our request for comment and cafe barone says they were told they don't have to post the report. san mateo county says that's against policy and is looking into the claim. >> okay, very eye opening.

6:52pm
two seasons with the 49ers will leave most people with a very positive impression, especially the way he handled the demotion. colin kaepernick took over. alex smith fully supported him and i think that's what people remember most about alex smith's eight seasons with the san francisco 49ers. >> i hope they remember him as a class act. >> to baseball we go. vogelsong on the mound. bottom of the second. bottom of the third, in a havna. four innings -- three innings, four ks and a hit. top of the six, two on. pagan launches a three-run bomb to right. his first home run this spring, 7-2, giants, just rolling over the angels. bottom of the ninth, romo is on to close it out. one out and one out, a single and a soft liner to left center. caleb comes around from second to score.
